to question where the future was going. i think pakistan would have serious challenges to its own ability to maintain stability. because if you think about it, they've got a pakistani taliban insurgency which is very dangerous, an afghan taliban run afghanistan would be a staging area to support that. so i think pakistan's stability would at least be challenged. >> i want to ask you about intelligence gathering and the treatment of prisoners, part of the legacy of this war on terror. a piece in the "los angeles times" i read this week and it was interesting because she said, look, we have to look at the totality of the fight to get bin laden. and there was incredible work done behind the scenes, incredible work done by intelligence officers in this country. and, yes, moral lines were crossed. but that's all part of the mix in terms of achieving the result. to the extent that enhanced interrogation techniques even what some people may consider torture was used in the successful hunt for bin laden. do the ends justify the means? >> that's one argument that can be made. and i'm not really pr

and the soviets. from the pakistan border to the atlantic ocean, you will have something like this, get ready >> are they the same it. ideologically as al qaeda in iraq? >> there are experts that can talk about that. by and large what they represent is extreme for the political islamic theological movements including using violence with anybody that disagree with them. that is what is in common for all of these organizations. calling them al qaeda is loose association. a few years earlier, they invited the city terrorists in iraq to join them as well. so you get these offshoots that are only loosely connected organizations. but they do have a similar theological and political agenda. >> how much of a threat do they represent to americans here? >> of algeria is an important energy exporter and an important country. this is a threat to of jury out. we see the expansion of rebels and these groups coming in, this is a potent threat and a huge area that needs to be dealt with. >> to syria where the bbc team has found evidence of a massacre that takes place on the edge of palms. our international c

weapon. pakistan is probably building more nuclear weapons than any other country in the world. pakistan is a very fragile system that can disintegrate at any time. we're not prepared for that. the whole challenge of the persian gulf, we're not prepared for that. i think it's accurate to say that by appointing the secretary of state and the secretary of defense that he has, john kerry and hagel, they're communicating accurately the minimalist approach to the world. you can make a case for that. but neither, neither of them nor the president has a positive vision of how you're going to deal with a worldwide virus that is increasingly destabilizing the planet. and that's what's happening from pakistan through north africa to syria and i think potentially in europe and the united states. >> i have less than a minute here. i need one-word answers from you. joe biden made a bit of a slip up talking about how hap he was going to be president of the united states. >> joe biden would be happy to be president of the united states and i think he is planning to run, if possible. >> quickly. >> i th

bomber, the so-called blind sheik. a pakistan scientist jailed for trying to kill american soldiers in afghanistan. the state department flatly denying the request. >> the united states does not negotiate with terrorists said. >> all say it again. the united states does not negotiate with terrorists. >> we do not negotiate with terrorists. we are obviously in consultations. lou: the problem with that statement is that this government has negotiated with terrorists. our government has been engaged in talks with the taliban and afghanistan since early 2009. the same group that has been a safe haven in the immediate aftermath of september 11th. documents found in the abbottabad compound the lion was killed proving a close working relationship between the two. the same group that is also responsible for a large portion of the 2200 american soldiers killed in afghanistan since 2001. not to menion the palestinian liberation organization the designation changed after we helped negotiate the deal. meanwhile, secretary of state hillary clinton chose her words carefully, while suggesting that

particularly in the afghanistan-pakistan region. but i think what this shows is, countries around the world share a common threat. it's why we work so closely with our counter-terrorism partners, sharing information and expertise and technology. but it's going to take a global response to this. and it shows whether it's in north africa, yemen you know, there are real threats out there from terrorism and we need to stay vigilant and we'll work with our allies and partners as close as we can >> what do you know about what the algerian government did trying to end this? they killed a lot of people. was this done right? >> first of all, i think the focus-- all of the blame here needs to be on the terrorists, obviously, who commitmented this act, to use innocent civilians in their twisted aims, obviously, is a terrible thing. we're, obviously going to be working closely with the algerian government in the days ahead to have a full understanding of what happened. but i think the focus needs to be here on the terrorists who committed this atrocity and understand there are threats around the world

qaeda was central al qaeda in pakistan. afghanistan was still operating, largely with impunity. and our alliances in the world were shredded. there was tremendous antipathy toward the administration and the country, and that has all changed. everyone at this table would agree that the world is a very complicated and dangerous place because of a lot of different forces, a guy setting himself on fire in tunisia and a whole region goes up, and because of social media. so we are living in a different world, and what we need to do is to be smart about where we engage and when we engage, because we cannot project force everywhere in the world and we don't have the resources and it is not a smart way to proceed. >> the drone policy has spread all over the world. and that is sort of what we're known by best. and to the arab spring, the united states was not a passive observer in this. yes, a fruit vendor in tunisia set himself on fire. yes, there was social media that helped spread this enthusiasm for change. but the united states did turn its back on mubarak in egypt. and i think we're going t

an islamic overrun? what does it say about the reach of al qaeda now, not in pakistan or afghanistan, but in this new region, in north africa, and what, if any, policy does the obama administration have to combat? >> i think the algerian -- what we will remember about this week is not the gun measures and gun control proposals and maybe not president obama's second inaugural address for this reason. first of all, al qaeda is not done, unfortunately it has found new territory and the french are going in, to their credit to try and save mali and we are being slow, according to news even providing backup help for them. the fact that -- i want to give them credit, the armed services committee of the house and the senate, would it ever happen in the past that the algerians would have felt they didn't have to let us know they were going in on a hostage rescue mission when americans were held hostage? not just not let us know, why didn't they ask for our help? we have a lot of assets in intelligence, and, we have a lot of well trained people who could become algerians for a day if they want

on counterterrorism. so, too, is this. drone strikes in pakistan that killed hundreds including civilians and children. indefinite detention and the ongoing operation of guantanamo bay. here with me is chris hayes and host of "up with chris hayes." >> this is a treat. >> you and me, sitting at the table. >> yeah. >> this is a piece of the president's overall strategy that you and i have had disagreements around. i want to thinking fairly through. what have the accomplishments been and what do we need to be concerned about and bring pressure ongoing to the next four years? >> look, you said iraq in the interim. i think it's important. i said this on my show, it is important. by the time iraq ended, the nation was so disgusted, exhausted with the war there and i think had felt they had made this ratifying choice in 2008 of the president's vision of bringing the war to a close, it was an afterthought. we devoted the whole show to the last day troops were in iraq. this was history. it was defining. let's remember the grand irony is if president obama as a state senator doesn't get up and go on the record
